Buy Mosquito Nets
350 mosquito nets
In the Peruvian Amazon, mosquito plagues are common due to the hot, humid climate (temperatures range from 21.8 to 31.6 degrees Celsius) and resurgent pools of stagnant water abound in river communities during the low water season. High humidity quickly claims low quality nets, and for most people, the cost of purchasing more durable nets is prohibitive.
This gift will provide approximately 350 individuals with insecticide-treated mosquito nets that will protect them against infectious diseases like malaria, leishmaniasis, dengue fever, and yellow fever. It will also protect against bat and snake bites which are common in the Amazon!
